Christine is a fine art painter who works mostly in the medium of acrylic on canvas with crack pastes and other physical effects, although she paints with water colour on paper as well. Christine Chan graduated from the Malaysian Institute of Art (MIA) in 1984 with a diploma in Fine Art and worked as an Art Instructor in MIA for almost a decade before co-founding the Montage Art Centre in Kuala Lumpur and teaching Fine Art there before retiring to further her art as a full time artist.
Christine works very closely with the concept of age, decay and life as reflected in her usage of contrasting physical textures and selectively veiled and grounded colour schemes to juxtapose the subject matter of her paintings against the passage of time wrought upon her chosen background for each specific piece.
Christine Chan now travels the world to gain inspiration and experience to enrich her art. She currently resides and works in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, Malaysia.
